Hi everyone

Just a problem I have with my hp stream 14 laptop I am trying to install windows 10 with a usb stick and when it's says where would you like to install windows and I only have one drive which is drive 0 unallocated space so I click it but it Sayed cannot install windows in the location you chose and I have no other drives listed so I don't what to do at this point. And also I tried making new partition but it would not let me create it and I also tried cleaning the drive using disk part just kept on saying the message suggestions on how to fix this problem.

Hi:

 

What you have done should have worked, so my assumption is the drive is no good.

 

Most of those stream notebooks come with 32 GB eMMC drives, which cannot be replaced unless the entire motherboard is replaced.

 

I suggest you run the drive diagnostics test (F2) in the BIOS and see if the drive passes the test.

Hi:

 

The Storage test is the hard drive test.

Unfortunately not.

 

I would have to say your PC is irreparable.
